Anna Seghers, James A. Dorothy Rosenberg (Afterword). What I love most about The Seventh Cross is that it documents the insidious beginnings of unjust imprisonment and paranoia in pre-WWII Germany. Jews in the book are still relatively free but required to wear a yellow star, and the death camps have not yet been built; the victims in this book are the political prisoners, and the camps they are held in are make-shift affairs at the edge of town.
It's a phenomenon creeping into daily lives now. Anna Seghers reveals the consequences.
The Seventh Cross (German: Das siebte Kreuz) is a novel by Anna Seghers, one of the better-known examples of German literature circa World War II. It was published first in the United States, in an abridged version. It was published first in the United States, in an abridged version, in September 1942 by Little, Brown and Company. Its publication was surrounded by a certain amount of fanfare; by the end of September, there were already plans for a comic strip version of The Seventh Cross, it having already been selected as a Book-of-the-Month Club book.
Listen to books in audio format. Kurt Vonnegut's absurdist classic Slaughterhouse-Five introduces us to Billy Pilgrim, a man who becomes unstuck in time after he is abducted by aliens from the planet Tralfamadore. Don't let the ease of reading fool you - Vonnegut's isn't a conventional, or simple, novel.

One cross remains empty. Anna Seghers' story is about how solidarity can survive even in times of terror. Austrian director Fred Zinnemann, who emigrated to the US, turned Anna Seghers' novel "The Seventh Cross" into a film there in 1944. The fictitious concentration camp Westhofen, in which the novel is set, is located on the edge of a residential area. Seghers places it in her familiar native Pfalz region in southwestern Germany, and she describes how quickly this place with its prisoners is considered "normal" by the area's residents.
Harshly dividing critics and readers alike, Kurt Vonnegut Jr. will nevertheless be remembered as one of the most important and influential writers of the 20th century. Here we list the very best books by the author. With a body of work spanning over 50 years, Vonnegut’s distinctive style and voice, as well as the ambitious themes that he tried to tackle, have left a legacy that demands exploring. Courtesy of Dial Press. The Sirens of Titan (1959). Recognized by many as Vonnegut’s greatest novel, this is also perhaps his most traditional piece of science fiction.
